. but these are the numbers that are really bearing down on the gop nominee. these are mitt romney's likability numbers in six key battleground stat states. topping our political headlines, mitt romney going after president obama on foreign policy today. in his weekly podcast, romney said the president is fumbling his response to events in the middle east. >> this week, when president obama was asked about the recent disruption and chaos and violence in the middle east, he said that these were merely bumps in the road. that casual assessment of shocking events reveals that the president really doesn't understand the gravity of the challenges that we face in the broader middle east. >> meanwhile, the obama campaign is out with a new ad, it takes aim at romney's experience at bain capital, spotlighting workers who said they lost their jobs because governor romney was more concerned about short-term profits than creating jobs. >> people need to know what mitt romney did to miriam, indiana, in 1994. >> you don't just come in and take everything everybody's got and destroy a business. i mean, that's what they did.
that this election comes down to all the plans that governor romney has. and actually, i think his economic plan is pretty clear. i think it probably comes down to a group of voters who might have voted for president obama the first time, but for whatever reason, they're still undecided. they already know what president obama did his first term. they didn't like it. the question is, is he going to kind of change gears and do something different? be a little more of the type of president who will reach across the aisle. for some reason, he hasn't closed the deal with these voters. that gives governor romney a great opportunity. >> matt, you say the president hasn't closed the deal with voters. he's ahead in nine different polls -- >> but my point, craig, is this. is that if he had all the voters right now, today, that he had in 2008, this thing would be over. but he doesn't. those who are still undecided and many of those polls you cite, even though i could quibble with most of them, many show the president under 50%. there are voters who voted for president the first time, but they're not with h
. mitt romney made over $100 million by shutting down our plant. turns out, that when we built that stage, it was like building my own coffin. >> cenk: damn! god that's howerful! in ohio they are blue collared they see an ad like that and it is in the words of frank lund devastating, devastating. now you lose ohio let me show you how devastating that is. ohio voters have directly picked the winning presidential candidate in the last 11 elections. but it gets better no republican has ever won an election without winning ohio. he is down by ten. we don't have that much time left to go. tick tock tick tock. this thing is over. all right. how about female voters. look at these gigantic leads. florida, ohio, pennsylvania, how about male voters? "politico" did an article about that. they talked to a guy they love. he was just recently [ inaudible ] to the gop. but here is what he said again, talking about that 47% comment that romney made saying i don't care about 47% of the country. bob said quote, what i took away is . . . when you lose guys like that and "politico" wr

on october 11th between vice-president joe biden in connecticut. mitt romney and president obama are down for the weekend getting ready to square off in denver for the first of three presidential debates on wednesday. that's the latest from this chunk of the campaign trail. let's send it back to you. >> okay. ron mott. bob seger music background music there. >>> in today's strategy talk, president obama and mitt romney head into wednesday night's debate with the president leading in the latest polls in all nine battle ground states. at the same time, governor romney's favorability rate rgz in the low 40s which is almost 10 points lower than president obama's and three points lower than former president george w. bush at this point. voters in several swing states also say they believe president obama cares more about the needs and problems they are currently facing. this is a snapshot here of florida, ohio and pennsylvania. when you look at which candidate voters think will implement policies favoring the middle class, president obama comes out ahead of governor romney in those same three
well it's going to reflect on the down boll ballot. >> right now, obama leads romney by seven points in wisconsin. what effect do you think -- when you're traveling every day, working 24 hours a day practically campaigning, your head is around meeting people, remembering names, being nice to people, and trying to think. the other thing going on the whole time, they're trying to think to make their president. how does that get into people's minds, do you think, when they're talking to you? >> yeah, i have to tell you that when people are focusing on the u.s. senate race they're asking themselves a couple basic questions, whose side are you on? who's fighting for the hard working middle class families of wisconsin? they know i'm on their side and that's what i've done. they're also learning a lot about what tommy thompson has been doing for the last decade of his life. he left wisconsin and joined the bush administration. in his service there, he gave the drug companies a sweetheart deal with the medicare part "d" program. he made it illegal for medicare to bargain with the drug compan
to a "new york times"/cbs/quinnipiac poll, obama leads romney by ten points. down in florida, the president's lead in the poll is nine, 53-44. enupigd now, even s to be in the face of this coordinated attack from the right. with me now are mother jones bureau chief and msnbc political contributor david corn and cynthia tucker. i want to talk about theood news for the obama team right now. cynthia, why do you think -- take a minute here -- despite this ugly campaign i've just pointed out in its pattern, its thread, what they are doing to try to delegitime this president, why is he doing well in the toughest states? >> we've talked about what campaign has done wrong. we haven't spent as much time talking about the things obama has done right. obama has done a lot of things for e thing, he's just a stronger candidate. he relates to people better. he's more approachable. his favorability rates are higher, while romney has high unfavorability ratings. but obama actually has a set of principles he believesn. so, he has a message that he carries out on the campaign trail over and over again. mitt
're fully expecting a 90-minute attack aimed at tearing romney down. mr. obama's traveling press secretary is joking about the whole attempt to lower expectations saying well, he could just fall right off the stage. the president is up in basically all of the most recent polls. gallup has him at 50 to 44%. reuters has him up by 7 and even fox news has him up by 5. even some top romney officials are admitting he's a lousy candidate! according to politico this morning, republicans even some of those working for romney say the real problem is not the polls or the gaffes or the leaked 47% remark, it's just mitt romney. they say he's a great businessman but when it comes to leading a political campaign, he is just, plain unnatural. and planned parenthood is stepping up its attacks against the romney campaign. this week, voters in virginia are getting fliers in the mail warning romney would turn back the clock for women. it also highlights his plan to eliminate federal funding for planned parenthood. we're back with more
the punches? >> reporter: at a pre-debate rally in denver, romney seemed to down play reports that his campaign has prepped him with zingers to go after the president. >> it's not so much winning or losing or the people themselves, the president and myself, it's about something bigger than that. it will be a conversation with the american people that will span almost an entire month. >> reporter: romney aides say the gop nominee is adjusting debate tactics away from what worked with a handful of opponents on stage to a more one-on-one approach. >> there's one person on stage. it's done three nationally televised head-to-head debates in a general election format. that's been president obama. governor romney hasn't. >> reporter: during the primaries romney demonstrated he can stumble. as he did trying to bet rick perry big money at one debate. >> rick, i'll tell you what, $10,000? $10,000 bet? >> reporter: but romney is no debate lightweight here taking down newt gingrich's idea for a moon colony in florida. >> if i had a business executive come to me and say they wanted to spend a few h
in the polls to bush. he ended up losing by two or three points. romney's only down three points. romney needs to carry -- >> but he didn't win. here's the other thing. the average going back to 68, the average undecided has been 13.5%. right now, you have a small undecided electorate out there. you've had $72 million spent by the super pacs attacking the president. what is mitt romney going to say that $72 million hasn't said about the president? is he going to sing -- >> please, no singing. >> isn't it the truth that voters discount what is said in ads, because they already think it's spined and they trust a little bit more what the candidates say? >> people hate negative ads. >> there's a reason why they keep doing it, because they work. >> here's the bottom line, though. annual one of five are watching it. the persuadable voters are watching "american idol" or "dancing with the stars." >> they're going to hear the news the next day. >> the opinion makers, the people that they talk to around the coffee the day after, you folks who talk about it on television, you're going to tell them who w
that bothers me because this affects voting. nor florida shenanigans, we have a video of a romney volunteer down there saying that president obama is a muslim. it was picked up by an answering machine after the volunteer didn't hang up before moving on to her next call. the clip aired in tampa on a radio station, wmmf, nbc news hasn't independently authenticated the audio. >> you don't want obama. you really don't want obama because he'll get rid of your made care. you might as well say good-bye to it. yeah, and, i don't know if you've done any research on obama or not, but eggs a muslim. >> well, he is a muslim. that's push polling. you pretend to be polling and all you're doing is putting out the word the guy is a communist. >> would you vote for someone who believes in communist. we're taking a survey. we've been talking about this for a couple years. for some reason the republican party and their conservative allies can't get away from describing obama as muslim, not born here, not believing in america. >> i know, i know, i know this is what they do. the head of florida's gop where the
voters this will be his chance to cut through the noise and speak directly to voters. >> governor romney down at least in nine recent swing state polls. most regard wednesday's debate at his last best chance to win over voters. how is his message or perhaps even his tone. how is it going to be different wednesday than what we've seen and heard so far? >> look, i mean i think he's going to get a chance to speak directly to voters. he's going to talk about this is a clear choice in this election. do people want a romney/ryan ticket that is going to look to create prosperity and jobs and upward mobility for americans? or do they want more of the past four years that they have seen, which hasn't been very bright and it's been obama's failed economic policies that haven't been working. so i think this is great opportunity for governor romney to outline his plans. i don't think wednesday is a make-or-break night. i think he'll do great and i think you'll see the numbers in the polls tighten. >> i want to call your attention to some critics of the campaign on the right and the left. on fox news
president like mom. >> it's going to be ups and downs and we know the media is anxious to write the romney/ryan comeback story. >> everybody is playing. we know some of the questions asked had an agenda as well. anyway, romney has a rally in colorado tonight. but for the next two days both candidates will be largely hunkering down with debate prep, cramming if you will. as his former debate coach put it in "the new york times," quote, the governor's done great job of convincing people that the economy's bad. he's got do a better job of making case that president obama's directly responsible for that. that's got to be his focus. if it becomes about anything else, then i think the governor's at a disadvantage. expect romney to go on offense, he has to. as someone in the campaign, perhaps unhelpfully leaked to "the new york times," quote, romney's team has conclude thad debates are about creating moments and it's equipped him with a series of zingers that he has memorized and has been practicing on aides since august. well, so much for keeping expectations low, right? romney also has to prove
about managing expectations. romney is down playing promises of a big tax cut and that is definitely raising eyebrows. what he could be doing is just trying to appeal to independents who are worried about getting a handle on the deficit. also president obama has been hammering away at romney's tax plan arguing it will add to the deficit. romney has called for cutting all tax rates by 20%. he also wants to eliminate taxes on capital gains and dividends for families who make less than $200,000. there was an independent analysis done by the nonpartisan tax policy center and it did find that romney's plan would drop tax revenues by $5 trillion. but romney has promised he won't add to the deficit because he'll pay for any tax cuts by limiting deductions for taxpayers especially the wealthy. so this isn't really a major break from what he said before. he's just kind of shifting the emphasis, playing up a different part of his plan. >> so deductions. what deductions would mr. romney limit? >> now, that is the $5 trillion question. we tonigdon't know. he has hinted he may scale back the mort
's a drag. they are making me do my homework. >> reporter: while romney aides continue to play down expectations for the debate, new jersey governor chris christie continued to ramp them up on monday. >> it's a huge night. had a bad couple of weeks, and we want to turn this around, and if you want to turn it around, you've got to perform on the biggest stage. >> reporter: speaking of turning around, a slew of national polls have come out in the last couple of days all showing the same thing. mitt romney inching back up, only a few points behind, down anywhere from two to four points. what's interesting here about the numbers, savannah is, president obama's numbers sort of locked in place at 49. the fluidity is in mitt romney's number. >> chuck todd in denver this mornings thank you. >>> bill o'reilly is the host of "the o'riley factor" and author of the new book "killing camelot," in stores today. >> nice to see you. >> i've heard you say on your show polls don't really matter until after the debates which i take it to mean you do think these debates are incredibly important. >> fro
't the windows roll down? i don't think he was joking because he couldn't possibly be joking about his wife being in a plane crash. so did he -- has he never seen gold finger? >> right? maybe mr. romney was joking when he said it was a real problem he couldn't get the windows to roll down in airplanes when he was joking about scary involving his wife. you wouldn't think a guy would joke about. maybe he meant only planes flying at low altitudes? we don't know. regardless of what he meant and how strange that moment was on the campaign trail this weekend, frankly the roll down the windows moment is unlikely to rock the presidential campaign. it's unlikely to stick the way mr. romney's remarks did on the issue of the 47% of the country he considers to be victims and dependent on the government. tonight there's new news on that it tape. exclusively here. specifically, new tape. it's coming up at the end of the show. stay with us. leave the windows where they are in the meantime. i'm an expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising

to be campaigning next week, obama 51. r romney 44. chuck, why don't you break those down for us? >> look at north carolina and nevada, the two places that economically are doing worse probably than any of the other battleground states. so if romney's economic message is going to play anywhere it's there. he should feel given how bad his last ten days were that the fact that he is only basically in the margin of error in those two states is good news for him if you will if you can look at it that way. notice that the president's job rating in both of those states, lower than his number. he sits at 47 in north carolina, 48 in nevada. then new hampshire is acting like the rest of the battlegrounds we've seen and that's got to be a little disappointing to romney since he spent so much time in new hampshire but frankly that one didn't surprise me. the surprising one to me was nevada that it was close. i expected there to be a little more of a gap there. >> suffolk university poll out late last night shows that the candidates are pretty close in virginia. neck and neck. obama 46. romney 44. chuck? >> t
